How to Hire Remotely

I previously wrote on How to Work Remotely. Now, I throw some tips out there from the other side. While I’ve worked remotely for over a decade, I’ve also hired and managed teams remotely on several occasions in that time as well. I would have to say that the most important lesson that I’ve learned […]

No More Fragmentation and Compromise for Digital Creators

Most of my ideas/projects/inventions/companies (whatever you want to call them) come from a place of wanting to solve a problem, counter something I think is wrong, address an annoyance or pet peeve I have, or stick it to “the man” or the way things are “suppose to be.” Sometimes, they’re just for fun. But, I […]

How to Work Remotely

In reference to the image above: “Amateur Wireless Station” — Ha! That’s a perfect nickname for my office. Sadly, phrases like “Work from home!” and “Be your own boss!” have become synonymous with scams and spam. Well, I have worked from home and been my own boss successfully and legitimately for over a decade now. […]

Selling on Flippa

Even though I’ve been selling on Flippa for the past 7 years (or at least trying to), I’ve only recently gotten into the groove of it. In my experience, what I’ve learned so far is that Flippa buyers aren’t much interested in only domains (unless they’re strikingly good one-word domains like water.com, books.com, etc.), but […]

craigslist — Still Crazy After All These Years

Within the last year I’ve started browsing craigslist for projects again, along with all of its eccentricities and flaky users, it is still one of the best places to find work. Recently, I applied for a logo design project and here was the reply I got: “I appreciate you taking to time to consider my […]

The Unfortunate Side of Business (Legal Issues)

Owning your own business is part of the American dream, and at the same time, like most things that are worthwhile, it’s usually a lot more work than you first anticipated. Whether you’re an individual professional that’s looking for clients or a fully registered business looking for customers, it takes a while to build your […]

Web: A Needle in a Haystack Industry

The web is a truly unstoppable industry, growing exponentially and completely unaffected (in my opinion) by the economy like other tangible industries, construction and real estate for example. It’s a global community with little to no overhead. It’s never mattered how any specific city, state, country, or even continent is doing, because I’ve reached them […]

Sellwire — The Best Way to Sell Digital Goods Online

Sellwire is hands-down the winner for the overall best way to sell software, themes, plugins, PDFs, etc. online. I discovered this after weeks of signing up for and testing all the popular competitors. I tried Fetch, Pulley, PayLoadz, Sellfy, and a desperate dozen others to try and find something suitable. What I needed and Sellwire […]

Professionalism

I’ve been a web pro for about 7 years now. I’ve come a long way in that time, but there is still a long way to go in maturing and wisdom. I’ll share with you my findings and hopefully get some feedback from other professionals on how they handle the day-to-day. Rule #1: Keep your […]
